This four-week course offers your child a basic introduction to the art of Egyptian raqs sharqi, known in the West as belly dance!  Besides being a great way to build coordination and confidence, belly dance is a fun and unique opportunity for kids and teens to experience a taste of Egypt.  In each session, we’ll sample several of the fundamental movements of the dance, and we’ll combine them into a fun choreography – all while exploring Egyptian music and culture.  We'll also explore how to integrate colorful dance veils and jingly finger cymbals into the dance (veils and cymbals are provided for use during class time).

These classes are geared towards children (age groups 5-8 and 9-12) and teens (age group 13-17) Older teens and young adults (18 and up) are welcome to join Nisaa’s regular Level 1 course!  (You can read descriptions of the Level 1 course and other courses here.)
